JOHNNIE STEELE. AKA and see "Auld Brig o' Ayr (The)," "Bob Steele," "New Brig o' Dee (2) (The)," "Miller o' Dervil (The)," "Benholm Castle." Scottish, Strathspey. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Hunter): AAB (Skinner). Composed originally by James Barnett [1] (1847-1898) of Kirkwall, Orkney, although the melody has been developed by others under a variety of titles.
